As if we could love the Charlie Rose Show any more.

There's a lot of High Line talk at the beginning of this interview, plus discussion of Diller Scofidio + Renfro's other work: The Blur Building, the ICA in Boston, and of course the new Alice Tully Hall.

Thanks to everyone who turned up this morning in support of  the High Line at the City Council hearing on the Eastern Rail Yards rezoning. The committee room and another, larger overflow room were both filled to capacity with High Line supporters wearing  "Save the High Line" T-shirts. (To everyone who came, you sure do look sexy in red!) Thanks also to those who took their time to testify to the Committee-- so many passionate and well-spoken New Yorkers certainly made a big impression.

The new Broadway revival of West Side Story opened to great reviews last week, in no small part due to the steely strength of the supporting cast. Check out the tall, dark, and handsome stranger in the back – look familiar?

Please note the new date: this hearing is now scheduled for Tuesday, March 31.

This City Council hearing is an important step in the public review process for the rail yards and, therefore, for the future of the High Line. It  will be a critical opportunity to show the City, State and developer how much public support there is for preserving the High Line at these sites.

The Council has been an ardent supporter of the High Line from the very beginning of our advocacy efforts. By coming to this hearing, you'll galvanize that support and send a clear message to all decision makers in the development process.

Then and now! We're finally witnessing the fruits (flowers) of our labor. These beautiful pictures of an early Spring blooming shrub with fragrant flowers taken by Sierra Bainbridge at Field Operations are just the beginning of what promises to be an exciting Spring on the High Line. More images after the break.

As if we needed another reason to save the High Line at the Rail Yards.
